Continuing today's stretch of deck-clearing posts, let's prod the body bag of Daily Kos' first horse race poll since cutting ties with the now-disgraced Research 2000.
The results are not awful for Chris Coons, who's still unknown to 39% of the electorate -- an indicative of both his room to grow and work that remains to be done (such as reversing the fact that Castle is picking up 30% of Democrats and 27% of liberals). It's also worth noting that these numbers are pretty much right in line with Rasmussen's latest.
John Carney (D): 48
Michele Rollins (R): 32
Castle's at-large House seat is still one of the few bright lights for Democrats this fall, despite the large amounts of coin Rollins and Urquhart, two Some Dude-level candidates in terms of name recognition, are dumping out of their piggy banks.
Transparency Bonus: Kudos to PPP for willingly sharing their raw data file (.CSV) -- which is not something you usually see a pollster divulge. That raw data has already gone to use; just check out these cool visualizations made by Todd Stavish based on PPP's data.
